The Verona Quartet collaborates with UNCSA clarinet faculty-artist Oskar Espina Ruiz and UNCSA string students on a program ranging from classical to contemporary works.
One of the most sought-after string quartets of its generation, Verona Quartet delights
audiences at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Wigmore
Hall and Melbourne Recital Hall. Acclaimed for its bold, interpretive strength and
electrifying performances, the quartet is the 2020 recipient of Chamber Music America’s
